Matchbox Collage Art.

It's my turn over on the Paper Artsy blog today with my project incorporating matchboxes.

Enjoyed making this collage, and had fun with the matchboxes. I was going to keep them 'hole', but then I discovered through play I liked them crushed.

Love adding parchment within my collages, loved how it took the Versafine Ink and the Fresco Chalk Paint.

Must remember to add matchboxes in future!!

A box of Eggs Colours..

My turn over on the Paper Artsy blog with the current theme of Colour, Box of Eggs.

I have chosen to use a selection of stamps and Fresco Chalk paints in the new range from Courtney.  I chose to create onto some brown packaging with Blah Mange and Sea Glass.

I cut up and used elements of some of the stamps to encompass my focal point.

Added some elements to the edges to draw the viewer in.

Enjoyed playing with some new colours and stamps!! Had a further play with Blah Mange and mixing up with some grey and stitchery.
